First off, we would like to let you know about the latest review of The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark – this one is from Jez Winship and has been posted to his Sparks in Electrical Jelly blog. It’s quite a lengthy and in-depth review, and you can read it HERE.

On the subject of The Christmas Ghost Stories, we would like to inform purchasers of the Unsigned Hardback edition that, due to a printing error, the dustjackets are being reprinted. We have just received the proof and the finished articles will be here by the end of next week.

The Deluxe edition will soon be going to print – just minor details to the covers are being worked on by the magnificent John Oakey. Please bear with us as the signature sheets will be signed individually by Lawrence Gordon Clark, Tony Earnshaw and Simon Marshall-Jones, plus the slipcases are being separately custom-made for the book. Although this is taking longer than anticipated, we can assure you that the quality of workmanship will be absolutely superb – in other words, we will only produce the best for our customers. Many apologies for the delay, but it will be worth it.
